Packing like a champion - Pt 2
on 10 Mar 2017
Want to pack like a champion? Read on in the second of our 2-part guide. 7 sizzling hot packing tips!
Capitalise on empty suitcase space - Roll your clothes, instead of folding them. Stuff socks, underwear, and accessories inside of shoes. Leave no space unused.
Keep a sarong or pashmina in your carry-on - They can be used as a blanket on the plane, a scarf if it’s cold or a shawl on an evening out.
Create compartments - Two words here: packing cube. If you are visiting more than one city during your trip, packing cubes will help keep your suitcase organised and save you from having to pack and unpack. This will stop you losing the will to live, after two weeks in Europe..
Sharing your packing space - Travelling as a couple? Split your clothes between two suitcases on the off chance one of your bags goes MIA (missing in action) during the flight.
Bring a multi-socket extension cord - Although newer hotels have USB ports in rooms, it’s best to have an extra outlet to charge all of your electronics simultaneously.
Like a glass of the grape? Bring a waiter’s friend/corkscrew if visiting Europe. Many bottled wines are still a cork closure.
Packing trousers/pants – drape these folded in half and covered in a plastic sheaf, at the bottom of your case. They won’t be anywhere near as creased on arrival!
